Tutorial: 2013 Pantone Color of the Year EMERALD

PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald

, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013. (according to their website). You will see this color everywhere from fashion to home textiles.

What is Pantone you ask? "Pantone is a standardized color matching system, utilizing the Pantone numbering system for identifying colors. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all reference a Pantone numbered color, making sure colors match without direct contact with one another." (

). Every year the company comes out with selected colors to feature for the season and one for the year. To learn more about Pantone please click

 I really love how rich this color is, it's a great color to work in your makeup routine.  If you are not brave enough to try the Emerald all over your eye try applying it as an eyeliner for a pop of color.  The possibilities are endless.

I will be focusing on all the Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report Colors below for future videos and MOTD'S. I love all the colors and can't wait to create some amazing looks for all of you.

Here are the products that I used to create this look:

Infallible golden emerald, endless pearl, iced latte

Elf 144 eye shadow palette matte green

Maybelline Fit Foundation 310 (I am usually a MAC Nc40/NC42

Tutorial: Applying False Eyelashes 101

 *my eyelash drawer is out of control!!!*

I've been dying to make a video tutorial on how to apply false eyelashes. I have to say this must be the #1 requested video that everyone asks for. Applying falsies does take a lot of practice and patience but with a steady hand and the right kind of adhesive you will be a PRO in no time. Trust me, it's not easy, but once you get it down it's a piece of cake.

Applying false eyelashes really changes the style of your makeup, you can go from a natural beauty to diva glam just by selecting the perfect pair to compliment your makeup.  There's so many different styles out there that your possibilities are endless.

Falsies can be bought anywhere now a days find them at Target, any drugstore, beauty department store (Ulta and Sephora) and many cosmetic brands do carry their own line (MAC and Makeup Forever).  I buy my lashes online, I find that it's cheaper than the stores.  I do need a lot of them when I do makeup on location for brides so it's always great to find quality eyelashes are reasonably priced.  Two online sites that I recommend are:

This site is great to find lashes that you would normally find at drugstores or beauty supply stores.  Brands they carry are Ardell, Red Cherry, Revlon,  Elise and Japonesque.  The more you buy of 1 style the more you save which is great if you need more than 1 pair.  You can find an assortment of styles from natural to theatrical styles and even individuals.  This is your one stop shop because they also have Duo Eyelash Adhesive.  I usually order the Red Cherry ($1.99) and Ardell Lashes (varies from $2.00 and +) for myself and my clients. This is my favorite site to shop for all sorts of different eyelashes.  With your order I always get an extra pair of free eyelashes, plus you get your package within a couple of days!

You can read all about these lashes from my previous post. 


The blog post has pictures of all the lashes that I have purchased from Model21. All my brides love the 63, it is the perfect lash for a natural look.  I like to use these when I am doing a large bridal party or when I am creating my own falsies by layering different lashes together.  Pack of 10 lashes for under $10 but these lashes are synthetic.

The two styles that I have featured in the video are from Red Cherry which I purchased from

.  What I like about this brand is that their false eyelashes are real hair and not synthetic.  The eyelashes are softer and not so plastic looking. 

These are the two styles, I did edit the pictures a little bit so you can see the eyelashes better.

My Favorite False Eye Lashes Model 21

I have been in the beauty industry for about 10 years already, I love it.  There's so much out there to play, touch and feel the possibilities with color and textures, there is never a dull moment.

For those of you that have been following me either on YouTube,, Instagram or Facebook you notice I always wear falsies!.  I love false lashes!!  I think of them as the finishing touches to your makeup, like the frosting on a cake.  It just adds that extra piece of glam. 

I am always looking for the best value on makeup products especially items that you use daily or if you are a makeup artist products you use on clients.  I came across the eye lashes by Model21 Eyelashes on ebay a couple years ago, but wished they had their own website I could order from.  Just last year while I was searching the web I cam across their very own site. Hooray! Here are some points why I love these lashes so much.

  • 10 pairs of Model 21 falsies in one box
  • Free shipping with orders of 3 box eyelashes or more (USA) They also take international orders, different shipping rates apply.
  • Free 1 box with purchase of 4 or more (same brand) The free lash is selected for you.

 I had a client/friend of mine wear these on her honeymoon in Aruba.  She went out swimming and she still had her lashes on!  Also shipping is fast, no waiting around for these lashes to arrive.

Below you will find some of the styles that I have ordered in the past.  On their website its hard to see the styles up close. Also I have enclosed some pics of me wearing the lash so you can see what they actually look like on.

I really like to design my own lashes by layering on different styles on top of each other, you can create so many different type of styles.  If you are wondering about my different eye looks you can find my Makeup Of the Day's on my Tumblr blog or on Instagram.
